Character Design Contest ♯127 (Heads Up) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯128 (Dressed To Impress) Winner

I can’t say I was expecting this result. Not trying to put down our winner or anything, but I thought it would be the person who came second who won. But then, my personal favourite came fifth, so what do I know. Still doesn’t change the fact that this weeks winner (and deservedly so) is Vampyrist for his Ancient Armour. Congrats Vamp, and well done to all of the people who entered.

Doctor Who Series 9 Yay & Nay

So, the first preview of the up coming series 9 of Doctor Who has been unveiled, so therefore I must give my opinions on what I want to see or do not want to see in the up coming series, as I did last year. Only this year, I’ve only got 3 points each instead of 5, because we’ve had a series to get used to how the new style of the show is, so therefore less to really talk about. Enjoy.

Cosplay Done Right!


Character Of The Week- AMS vs. Nug

Do I need to explain this? At all? It’s AMS! (Gestures to one side). And Nug! (Gestures to the other side). Collaborating! (Gestures at the screen). That is enough reason to put this as COTW.

Gallery: errr….. hang on, that’s not right.

Galleries (that’s better): Nugarius on Deviantart & smitty309 on Deviantart

This has only been posted on Deviantart so far, so might as well put the links to those galleries. And anyway, everyone knows where to find both of these guys galleries on the forums.

Kaldath’s Caption Contest #68: Results

Due to the low turn out for last weeks caption contest I am just going to make this a quick post and name the winner, which is ………….

Character Design Contest ♯129- Heads Up

Ok, so this week, your focus in this challenge shall be heads, with particular focus on faces and hair. Now, a few additional rules for this weeks contest shall be in place, as with last week. No Masks or Hats, obviously, as that sort of defeats the whole point of the challenge, though hair accessories and jewellery are allowed. Also, all submissions must be headshots only, so you don’t need to do anything below the shoulders. You can do non-human heads for this challenge (as I know someone will ask about this), just so long as it meets the other entry criteria. And yes, your character must have some sort of hair or facial hair, but don’t just slap one of the standard hair items on the and call it a day. Be inventive.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Honourable Mentions- Son4, Keric, Thundersong, Ubiquitous Pixel, MadJack (basically enough to have a second poll. As per usual, the costume contest was a pain in the butt to judge 😉 ).

Character Design Contest ♯127 (What a bunch of posers) winner

Now that’s more like it. We managed to get back up to our usual poll participation level for this week, which, after last week, is a relief. And it was an interesting weeks worth of voting, with our eventual winner having to fend off second place at every turn, only to pull ahead at the last minute to take the win. And the person to whom I refer is djuby for his excellent (if untitled) entry. Congrats djuby and well done to everyone who entered.
